somewhere between vanity and self-hate

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

I started using a $2.50 bottle of off-brand clarifying shampoo I bought two weeks ago on the blonde parts of my hair because my hair girl told me I had a lot of build-up. My hair has never been softer or more naturally agreeable than with every $10 - 18 bottle of fancy hair shampoo I’ve ever used and I think that might be the only thing getting me out of bed these days.

I haven’t been blow drying fully or curling my hair lately because putting effort into anything is terrible, so this is good.
